Washington, DC (PRWEB) July 01, 2014

Blue Water was recently recognized by the Web Marketing Associations 12th annual Internet Advertising Competition (IAC) for the American Lung Associations Share Your Story campaign. Named Best Associations Integrated Ad Campaign and Best Health Care Integrated Ad Campaign, the campaign honored Lung Cancer Awareness Month and provided support to patients, caregivers and survivors whose lives have been impacted by the disease.

The Share Your Story campaign is part of the American Lung Associations Facing Lung Cancer microsite, http://www.mylungcancersupport.org, which provides resources and education to individuals and families living with a lung cancer diagnosis. By facilitating public discussion around lung cancer, the #1 cancer killer of men and women in the United States, the Share Your Story campaign continues to help build awareness and reduce stigma around the disease, offering a source of support and providing a sense of reassurance and inspiration to those facing lung cancer.

The campaign consisted of a revamped homepage mosaic showcasing real people’s lung cancer stories and photos, landing pages where people could submit their stories and read those of others, buttons to facilitate social media sharing, and a tab to gather stories from Facebook. Additionally, a press release, e-newsletter, Facebook posts and Tweets (using the hashtag #LCAM) were sent out to encourage story submissions and honor the stories shared. As a result of this campaign, visits to the website in the month of November increased by 102 percent from the previous month, with a total of 130 stories shared.

Question by Nobody: Has competition helped make health care affordable in the US?
According to Paul Ryan,Republican VP candidate,Medicare needs some competition in the form of private insurers to keep it from going bankrupt. I have not used Medicare yet,but I have plenty of experience with competitive insurance,and all I have seen is costs going through the roof. What do you think?

http://news.yahoo.com/paul-ryan-seniors-medicare-going-bankrupt-competition-answer-213737478.html

Some answers here suggest elimination of insurance,at least the government sponsored kind,would solve the cost problem. But many other countries have government sponsored health insurance plans with mandates and their costs are much lower than in the US. What gives? Why is the US in such a quandary about this issue? Are we really this dense,or is the problem so out of hand that it is unsolvable now?

Product Description

The U.S. health care system is in crisis. At stake are the quality of care for millions of Americans and the financial well-being of individuals and employers squeezed by skyrocketing premiums-not to mention the stability of state and federal government budgets.

In Redefining Health Care, internationally renowned strategy expert Michael Porter and innovation expert Elizabeth Teisberg reveal the underlying-and largely overlooked-causes of the problem, and provide a powerful prescription for change.

The authors argue that participants in the health care system have competed to shift costs, accumulate bargaining power, and restrict services, rather than create value for patients. This zero-sum competition takes place at the wrong level-among health plans, networks, and hospitals-rather than where it matters most, in the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of specific health conditions. Redefining Health Care lays out a breakthrough framework for redefining health care competition based on patient value. With specific recommendations for hospitals, doctors, health plans, employers, and policy makers, this book shows how to move to a positive-sum competition that will unleash stunning improvements in quality and efficiency.
